One of the first steps in making a space feel like home is hanging photos and art. You could do this with frames from the dollar store and mix in a decorative mirror or other matching, wall-hanging items. I want to do this with black frames and black and white photos, Playbills, etc.
I can imagine doing something cool with photos + vintage industrial metal grating (not a memo board, but maybe clips+photos?)
Working on this now...I hope my valentine will enjoy it. He is nostalgic...but I've been leading him to believe he's getting a "cook-pot" for our camping trip. (HAHAHA.) So fun to go through old pictures and scan them in for this!! I still love my valentine.
